Thanks for suggesting unetbootin. Initially,unetbootin appeared to be working (i.e. it was writing files to the USB) however I was unable to boot from it.
After some reading on the web, I found out that I needed to run unetbootin as root. Although, I was still unable to create a bootable version of UNR from the .IMG file I was able to create a bootable USB from the ubuntu 9.04 desktop version .ISO file.
The desktop version appears to be working well and I must admit that I prefer it to Linpus Linux Lite.
hmm, interesting. Are you running unetbootin from the netbook? just curious. Out of interest, I am running eeebuntu 3.0 which is essentially ubuntu jaunty. I tried the netbook remix of eeebuntu, not impressed, I feel it hides functionality to some degree. I'm running the standard version now, much better! of course, YMMV...
I haven't tried that, though I do know that some netbooks support for USB is not great, and it's a bit messy. What might be interesting to do is see if the partition on the usb key is marked with a bootable flag, if not, the system will not boot from it. Gparted is a nice program to check this with.
